Plant details

Native to New Zealand, this striking tree fern is an increasingly common sight in British gardens, bringing a tropical feel to a shady spot. As one of the smaller tree ferns, it can also be grown indoors as a conservatory plant. The plant's trunk is formed from a thick mass of roots from which foliage appears in spring, unfurling from the centre to open up into large, rich green fronds. It grows best in dappled or deep shade in neautral or slightly acidic soil. Keep the plant well watered in a dry spell, and in winter protect the crown by wrapping it up with straw or dead fronds.
